As with any place, there are pros and cons. With this place, the pros do outweigh, but I will list them for objectivity.
Pros: Once you get to Lone Pine, which is in the middle of a desert and far from everything, you can walk to all points in town from this place. Which is awesome. Be sure to hit up the Alabama Cafe and the Bonanza Mexican Restaurant. Both are fantastic. For burgers, go to Carl's, Jr or McDonalds. Seriously. The other places are simply not good.
From this house you have access to amazing sights; Death Valley, Manzanar Historic Site, Mojave National Preserve, Alabama Hills National Recreation Area, Mt. Whitney, and endless gorgeous public lands that belong to YOU. It's mind blowing.
The house has a view of the Inyo Mountains, which are over 10,000ft tall and an a mazing representation of fault block mountains. Mt. Whitney and the gorgeous Sierra Nevada eastern rise are easy to observe two seconds down the road on foot. The entire skyline of Lone Pine is dominated by these ranges and gives this house an amazing setting.
The house itself is very comfortable and well appointed with what you need. There's even a washing machine and a clothesline out back for drying.
The wireless and Netflix work, there some minor non-perishables that others have left behind (to which I also contributed).
The futons are comfortable and so is the bed. The house has great natural light.
Cons, to be objective:
The dogs. One at the immediate neighbor to the south that barks from 7am to about 11pm. Two other dogs to the south and across the street that also enjoy day long barking fests. The owners of the dogs appear to be home, yet not care.
The back yard: reminiscent of Sanford and Son. None of this prevents access to the clothes line, but may be a surprise when you see it.
The toilet: are you taller than a child? Do you have a right leg? If so, you may have issues with the placement of the toilet.
I had difficultly engaging the owner days before arrival (read: unresponsive) to gain the access code, and didn't get that until after arriving and trying again, so start this process early.
After gaining access, I found the house had not been cleaned after the prior occupants had left. I had a conversation with the owner and this was resolved the next day while I was away.
Overall I really enjoyed the house and the trip and will definitely reserve this place again in the near future. I highly recommend this place for any traveler.
